The Basic Winemaking Kit is all of the necessary equipment for making our Vintner’s Reserve and other 5 or 6 gallon wine kits at home. Plastic and glass fermenters perform equally well. Good technique, quality ingredients, patience and careful sanitation are the keys to great wine right from the start! Our Deluxe Glass Kit exchanges the plastic fermenter with a 6 gallon glass carboy. Glass is easier to sanitize and lets you watch the amazing process of fermentation but the plastic fermenter can be easier for a beginner to use. Plastic fermenters are recommended for fruit wine making. Our Basic Winemaking kit for 6 gallons is the same kit as the basic, with a larger carboy and more corks. The Backsaver version is for 6 gallons of wine and comes with 2 three gallon carboys for secondary. Much lighter to lift and you can make two versions from the same kit. You will be amazed at what a nice wine you can make at a fraction of the cost of commercial wine. Cheers!
